Cool. Anyone using this should be sure to check out the other tests they ran. I like my antivirus to be as lightweight and inconspicuous as possible while still offering good protection.

Give updates 24-48 hours and spend some time researching them before applying them. :-/


Worst advice i have ever seen in the history of this board.

You absolutely want to update as soon as possible.LaggingRed posted...



hmm thanks for the feed back. What do you guys think about Kaspersky?


It's great if you want a russian backdoor on your box. I just stick with MSE.

If you look at reports and statistics you will see Kaspersky is the best anti-virus, I would post the links but I'm on my android atm

Same. Never had an issue to date. I tried Avast once for the hell of it and it caused issues with a program I was using so I stuck with AVG.

The default windows defender on win 8.1 which is the same as MS security essentials. Its all you need, other crap bloats your pc. As long as you browse intelligently viruses shouldn't be an issue. I just do the occasional scan with malwarebytes and superantispyware to check and make sure everything is.

I've not seen any compelling reason to use anything other than Windows Defender. It's built into Windows 8/8.1 and you can download it for Windows 7 from Windows Update. It is antispyware too, not just antivirus.
